Fort Campbell closes section of 59th Street

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – Due to a large number of vehicular accidents in the area, the Fort Campbell Military Police have closed 59th Street between Wickham and Market Garden Road.

The recommendation to close the short section of 59th Street came from traffic engineers from the Surface Deployment and Distribution Command at Scott Air Force Base after a safety study of the area was performed. Engineers determined the increase in vehicular accidents was the result of commuters using 59th Street to bypass the traffic signal at Glider Road and Wickham.

Road Closure

The Department of Public Works plans to install concrete barriers on this stretch of road later this year. Drivers should be aware of the change and develop an alternate route through the area.

For questions or concerns, please contact the Directorate of Public Works at 270.798.9700.
